What the school offers its staff

Wren Academy Enfield is the second Wren Academies Trust to open and is jointly sponsored by the London Diocesan Board for Schools and Berkhamsted School. Since opening in September 2020 the school has been closely modelled on the successful Wren Academy Finchley whilst creating a distinctive vision and ethos which matches the needs and aspirations of Enfield students who join the school. It is planned that the school will repeat the success of the Wren Academy Finchley which has attained 3 outstanding Ofsted reports, achieved some of the best GCSE progress results in the country and has created a highly successful academic Sixth Form. Wren Academy Enfield is a comprehensive school, which welcomes students whatever their previous academic attainment, then does all it can to maximise their academic and social potential. We are a vibrant and culturally diverse learning community where all members benefit from our distinctive and inclusive Christian vision inspired by the encounter of Zacchaeus with Jesus (Luke 19v1-10) and the exhortation found in Micah 6v8 to ‘Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God’. The curriculum is innovative, challenging and engaging. There is an extended school day with lessons of varying lengths, single sex teaching in core subjects and an extensive timetable of enrichment activities. Each half term Focus Days are organised when the usual timetable gives way to in depth study of a range of issues relating to PSHE, the academy specialism and our ethos. To further support learning and social development, a House system is in place which in September 2023 will consist of vertical tutor groups of students in Years 7-10. Heads of House are key middle leaders who play a pivotal role in caring for all students and ensuring they thrive throughout their time in the school.
